Album Notes
HotChaCha started as a girl band on an early Friday morning (in late March of 2007) at the West Side Market in Cleveland.

Mandy Aramouni and Jovana Batkovic were sipping on coffee and decided that due to Mandys’ brilliant guitar sound, and Jovanas’ outrageous stage presence, they had something HUGE going on. A few days later a local drummer, Lisa, was text messaged to come and jam with the above mentioned broads.

For three months the girls consumed large amounts of beer, peed in the garbage can at the practice space, wrote music, and jammed. Finally, one night under the influence of large amounts of alcohol, they agreed to play their first show. At this point the band consisted of Mandy- guitar, Lisa-drums, and Jovana- vocals.

After they rocked, offended a bunch of people, and inspired everyone to cry, they realized how HUGE they could be.

Another thing became apparent- they needed a bass player! Local bass playing boys were all in their business trying to get in on the HotChaCha phenomena, but the girls were firm- they wanted a girl bass player. That night Heather Gmucs saw the show and fell in love with the band. The next practice she joined HotChaCha and never left. It is than, that HCC was truly created.

Mandy, Lisa. Heather, and Jovi became one ultimate machine that will make you laugh, and cry, and twiddle dee dee all at once. You can’t deny the love.
